Hans Coper Reproduction

Recommended Posts

CLN studios    2

Hi everyone! I would like to have some information about reproducing this object. Im not to worried about reproducing color and texture at all, but more on the shape and form. From my research on Hans Coper and Lucie Rie i know they were into throwing pottery in 2 pieces (specifically Coper). So im guess that is the process of this piece. I would like to know how this piece was made. Was it perhaps made in 2 pieces or maybe even 3 parts, and also where do you think the pieces were connected? I've heard all about "you cant reproduce other artist work, work on your own stuff,ect.." I would just like some technical forming techniques instead of motivation speech  ;)  

 

additional info: This will be thrown out of ^5 stoneware (a workhorse clay that  i know inside and out)

                        It will not be glazed at all, just raw stoneware so glaze  will not be  playing a factor in shape .

How big would you say that is?  It looks a lot like a classical Greek aryballos.  Very simple form to throw.  Trimming that base might be tough, though, if you have to invert it.

Id say it is probably 7-9 inches. Ive studied classical ancient greece and roman pottery forever and I didn't even make that connection. Very simple form
